The Office of Sponsored Projects serves as the coordinating office for externally funded research projects submitted by The University of Texas at Dallas.
Certificate Series. The Office of Research is dedicated to providing faculty and staff guidance on the essentials of Research Administration. This series will take faculty and staff through the essential components of sponsored projects and the steps needed to administer research at UTD throughout the life of a project - from finding funding opportunities to closing out grant accounts. To enhance this effort, the offices of Research Development, Sponsored Projects, Research Integrity, Post-award Management, and Technology Commercialization have combined to offer a series of courses, each intended to give a deeper understanding of a specific aspect of contract and grant administration and technology commercialization.
Thanks to all who attended the series this time. Sessions will begin again in the spring. Please watch for announcments regarding dates and times.
Courses may be taken in any order, and you may choose to take as many or as few as you like. Course modules will be offered two times each year. You must attend 10 courses to receive a certificate in sponsored project management and a seat at our annual research recognition luncheon. If you attended a course in a previous installment of the series, you do not have to repeat that course to get credit.
Online registration at https://explorer.utdallas.edu/classes is required.
Please call x2313 to request additional information.
Faculty Presentation Series. Researchers, facing lower success rates and higher competition, consider applying to a variety of federal agencies as a way of diversifying their funding opportunities. The Office of Research supports the idea and, in an effort to familiarize researchers with other agencies, is enlisting a number of prolific PIs with continued success in obtaining research funding to discuss their agency specific experiences and expertise. This monthly Faculty Presentation Series will give faculty, staff, and students a deeper understanding of funding agencies, types of projects they fund, best practices and procedures, and other agency specific tips that can be utilized for greater success.
Please register for these free events at Research Explorer.
UT Dallas Faculty:
As you may know, recent changes to Grants.gov and other federal electronic submission systems have limited the ability of applicants to change or correct proposals after the submission deadline. In addition, these systems may take up to 24 hours to generate automated alerts of application errors. If the error message is received after the submission deadline, applicants cannot make corrections and the application will be automatically rejected. Over the past few months, several late proposals nearly missed the agency deadline or were hastily submitted with numerous serious errors resulting in their return or rejection.
The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) strives to provide our faculty with responsive, high quality service. In order to maintain the high level of service you have come to expect and address the issues outlined above, all submissions will be subject to the following requirements:
Adherence to this policy will ensure OSP and your individual specialist can assist you in submitting timely and high quality applications. If you have any questions about this policy or any other matters related to sponsored programs, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rachell Reilly, Director at email@example.com.
